Homemade Granola

June 29, 2008

When getting ready to go away for more than a couple days I usually make a batch of granola to take with me. It is a staple for camping and is great for long car rides when you need something nutritious and quick. 

The following is the recipe I use. I often double or quadruple it so I have lots. It is quite versatile and can be changed to anyone’s tastes. It can be enjoyed as is or with milk for breakfast. It’s also delicious on yogurt. Enjoy!


2 cups old-fashioned oats

1 cup raw nuts (walnuts, almonds, pecans, hazelnuts, etc)

½ cup raisins, craisins or goji berries

½ cup honey

1T canola oil

½ tsp. cinnamon

Dash of nutmeg (optional)

Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly oil 13″ x 9″ baking pan. Spread oatmeal, nuts and raisins in pan. In a small saucepan bring to a boil the honey, oil, cinnamon and nutmeg. Pour over oatmeal combination and stir until evenly distributed. Bake for 30 minutes; stirring every 10 minutes. Pour granola onto wax paper to cool and store in glass jar or plastic bag.
